Karanday Group's story

Teofila was the referent for this committee. She had been a member of another committee she was forced to leave it due to stronger motives; but aware of the benefits she would have gained, she invited neighbors and friends she trusted to create a new committee. They are currently working their seventh cycle in the Committee program do the Fundación Paraguaya.
Teofila is 44 years old, she is married with Ireneo, a mechanic, and they have two children. She is a seamstress: she told us that since it’s already some time she has been engaged in this activity, she can count on well-established customers. Her neighbors always order her all kinds of jobs, and she is therefore well known. She intends to continue growing and to keep on providing for family through this activity.
The loan she is requesting will be used to buy fabrics, needles and threads to create clothes to sell.
